Walton Read-a-thon

The Walton Elementary school library needs $12,000 for more books! The school's 550 students take 1500 books in and out of the library every week, and they're wearing out. This Walton PAC fundraiser supports the school's library to keep the kids excited about reading.

We reached our Read-a-thon goal - thank you for your support!

Each Walton student is planning on reading everyday for the month of January to raise $12,000 for the school library. This money will go towards keeping the existing books in good repair, and purchasing new ones for the next 4 years. Please support our read-a-thon!
